Amazon Has Added Prime Now Service to Alexa

Posted by at 8:52 am on March 21, 2017

 

Amazon said on Tuesday said that customers can now use Alexa to shop from its Prime Now rapid-delivery service. That means people in the over 30 US cities with Prime Now can call out to their Echo devices to shop for tens of thousands of items — including diapers, dish soap, NyQuil and Doritos — that will arrive in as little as two hours.

Also, alcohol delivery is available in Seattle, Amazon’s hometown, and beer and wine are available in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio. (Alcohol shipments require customers to show ID to the deliver worker.)

Amazon has been working to make Alexa a more powerful shopping tool, as part of its broader effort to make it as easy as possible to buy from the company. The e-retailer last July introduced the ability to order millions of items on Amazon.com through the voice assistant. In January, it added restaurant deliveries, too. Throwing Prime Now’s service into the mix was a next logical step.on Tuesday customers can now use Alexa to shop from its Prime Now rapid-delivery service.
